Which folder to put this in? Thanks for the great idea.
Just check the readme.txt at that link here it is for quick reference, but please read it at each download in case any changes have been made:
- Unzip and copy blk*.dat files into your bitcoin data directory
- Remove any database/log* files from your bitcoin data directory
- Run bitcoin or bitcoind
What this does:
- Resets the bitcoin block database and block database index
to the state it was in at the time the snapshot was taken.
- If you have a wallet with unprocessed transactions, the client
may not recognize them. Thus, the above warning: Only use these
data files IF YOU DO NOT ALREADY HAVE A WALLET.
for the location.
The easiest way in windows is: Start, Run, "explorer %APPDATA%\Bitcoin"
without the quotes.
